For his belief in the transformative role of education and his work to improve the lives of so many people, we are proud to call the Rafik B. Hariri building our home. We will ensure that the memory of his work and life continue through the community.” – Dean Paul Almeida Earlier this week, the Georgetown community and the Hariri Foundation celebrated the unveiling of the Rafik B. Hariri bust, created by sculptor Martin Eichinger. Hariri was prime minister of Lebanon from 1992 to 1998 and again from 2000 to 2004, working to bring peace and democracy to his country. As a Georgetown parent, Hariri was a generous supporter of the university, served on the McDonough Parents Advisory Council, and was awarded an honorary degree in 1996 in recognition of his work to advance education and opportunity for the underprivileged. His legacy of philanthropy devoted to these educational causes continues. In 1979 he founded the Hariri Foundation, which to this day, helps Lebanese students attend institutions of higher learning at home and abroad. #HaririSymposium #ExceedExpectations
